From the Niagara Falls Review:
Outdoor skating is on its way to Table Rock.
The Niagara Parks Commission has approved a plan by the Winter Festival of Lights for the ‘Rink at the Brink,’ putting a 20- by-40-metre sheet of ice next to the Horseshoe Falls.
Festival of Lights manager Dino Fazio envisions a family attraction similar to the world-famous rink at New York City’s Rockefeller Center.
“It has been quite a challenge for us this year with this project,” he says. “The timelines have been tight since Day 1.”
Planning began in February, and Fazio says the “logistics” were overwhelming.
But once it’s up and running in November, he expects it to become an “iconic” winter attraction for the city.
